Washington College Case Study

Campus Modernization Project

Washington College’s Physical Plant team has taken advantage of TEN’s technology-driven energy efficiency processes to specify and sequence their lighting upgrade program. TEN manages the project’s highly-competitive, vendor-neutral procurement process, and is responsible for securing all available rebates.

Washington College—the first college chartered in America after our independence—is a private, liberal arts college located on a bucolic 112-acre campus in Chestertown, Maryland.

Sustainability Results - Annual Savings of:

  • 686 Tons of CO2 reductions

  • 1,215,000 kWh Electricity

  • 16,000 “Trees planted”

An integral part of the Washington College culture is a dedication to sustainability. Washington College is adopting measures to reduce its carbon footprint, including a recycling program, a bike share program and a campus garden. These initiatives all reinforce the notion that small lifestyle changes can make a big difference.
TEN’s focus on sustainability and energy efficiency helped Washington College turn a routine dormitory project into a campus-wide lighting upgrade that will deliver superior lighting, lower costs and important sustainability benefits.
